Onboarding & Retention

At Stenhouse Recruitment  Services we are aware of the radically  changing world of work especially over the past 5 years.  From globalisation to the changing demographics of the working population, businesses are struggling to attract and retain top talent.

  • Generational differences
  •  Labour force trends
  • Workforce expectations
